Love Romances #99 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Love Romances v1 #99, 1961 - Only marginally better than the previous issue, Jack Kirby's artwork is relatively tame compared to other works from the early 1960s. He illustrates the entire issue, including the poorly composed cover and four tales of nearly the same length. Full page splashes open two of the stories, one overladen with dialogue and the other too lacking in information. The opener, "Teenager And The Truck Driver", is a tad more lively and engaging than the rest. On the positive side, Kirby does some clever panel sequencing with the story endings of both the first and final stories, making these predictable scenes all the more interesting, See today's posts or more Kirby or Love Romances issues.
